What would you do if fake accounts were opened in your name on social media and your photos were added? We explain the solution of this problem on a question that comes to us. Although this post is based on Instagram, the logic is similar.
Whatever platform the fake account was opened on, the solution is there. Follow the steps below to close an account on Instagram:
Fake Instagram Account Opened in My Name! How can I turn it off?
- Visit the fake profile first.
- Press Menu in the upper right corner (three dots).
- After tap on ‘Report‘,
- Report Account
- Imitating someone else
- Me (*use only yourself)
Then tap the Submit Report button. Instagram does the rest.
If you want others to report this account, have them tick “Someone I know” when reporting this fake account. So it shouldn’t mark “Me” part! This may seem simple, but it can complicate the problem even more!
If you don’t get results, repeat the process. If you still do not get a result, ask your friends for help. You can ask them to report the fake account opened in your name. So Instagram can take you much more seriously.
